If you are planning on a move soon, one thing to take into serious consideration is the neighborhood. And in this video, I’m going to share with you 3 quick questions you need to answer while searching for your next home.
Selecting Your Next Neighborhood
One of the most important aspects of purchasing a home is the neighborhood. After all, you’re not just selecting a house, you’re deciding on the community where you will be building a life!
It is also the neighborhood that can help or hurt the resale value. So, do not overlook the con’s of the area just because you love a house.
3 Questions For Choosing A Neighborhood
Now, let’s go ahead and talk about 3 questions to answer in choosing a neighborhood:
How close are the amenities? Are you looking for a home near a good church, top schools or convenient stores? Learn what amenities you’ll be near and consider how it will affect commute times, running errands or just going out for fun.
What are the neighbors like? Are the streets lined with cars? How well are the neighbors’ yards maintained? Are the houses in good shape or need repairs? Details like these can reveal a lot about the neighborhood’s personality.
Is this a safe neighborhood? Feeling safe in your neighborhood goes beyond installing a security system. Do neighbors walk their dogs or go for morning jogs? Are the streets noisy when you drive down them at night? Are there plenty of street lights? What are the crime statistics?
If you can provide positive answers for those questions, the neighborhood should be one that you will enjoy spending time in. That said, there are other factors that can change and determine the quality of an area. This is where an expert real estate professional can help you out tremendously.
